 Hello everyone,

I would like to create a website that has a button, and whenever the
button is pushed, an application or service on my phone will begin.

Could someone please push me in the right direction for where I should
look to accomplish this?

 You can also build an intent: URI.  Note that the browser automatically
tacks the BROWSABLE category on to any such intents, so you can only reach
activities that have explicitly said that support that category.  See the
Intent documentation for the API to convert an Intent object in to its
String URI representation.

1. Question: How to debug Calendar or other default applications

I've setup my debug environment and I can generate android projects
like "api demo" using eclipse and adt, and I can debug it as well.

Now's the problem, when I generated a Calendar app from the raw
source. I found many imports are missing. Like
android.provider.Calendar.Reminders; android.text.format.DateFormat
etc. So it can't be compiled at all.

Can anyone give me some hint about how to debug these projects like
this one? Thank you very much.


2. CallLog.Calls.NEW - what is it?


The javadoc description for this column is: "Whether or not the call
has been acknowledged".  Acknowledged how, and by whom or by what?

As far as I can tell with the emulator, a missed call has NEW value 0,
and incoming and outgoing calls have value 1.  And nothing I do from
the call log seems to change this value (e.g. returning a missed call,

A related question:  how do I simulate a waiting voicemail on the
emulator?  I tried checking the "send directly to voicemail" box on a
contact and then having that number call in, but the call just rings
until one end or the other hangs up.
